India, Oct. 10 -- In his 50th Test as India captain, Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat first in the second Test against South Africa at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium on Thursday. India made one change to their winning combination from the first Test, playing an extra bowler in pacer Umesh Yadav in place of Hanuman Vihari.

South Africa also added an extra pacer, handing a debut to their express Anrich Nortje in place of off-spinner Dane Piedt.

"It's a good to win the toss and bat first, the wicket is probably best for batting on the first day and half, it eventually turns from day 2 and 3," said Kohli at the toss.
